The collection comprises approximately 710 black and white negatives taken by Lady Trenchard Cox in the mid-20th century. The negatives mainly show medieval church architecture; there are a small number of general exterior views of churches. The corresponding prints are in the Red Box Collection.

The collection has wide geographic coverage, with most counties in England being represented. Particularly well-represented counties include Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Yorkshire and York, Suffolk, Somerset, and Shropshire. Cathedrals include Norwich, Bristol, Salisbury, Exeter, Carlisle, and Wells. There are 6 negatives showing locations in Wales, and 2 of Scotland.

Subjects of the photographs are predominantly interior architecture and decoration: misericords, wall paintings, stained glass, poppyheads, tombs, and carved fonts and pulpits make up the majority of the collection. Also shown are tympanums, relief carvings, decorated panels, capitals and archways. The exterior of churches is sometimes shown as a general view, or as views of a specific feature such as a tower, window, gargoyle, or buttress.
